  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Endoscopic transnasal resection of anterior cranial fossa meningiomas.
  • OBJECT: The extended transnasal approach, a recent surgical advancements for the ventral skull base, allows excellent midline access to and visibility of the anterior cranial fossa, which was previously thought to be approachable only via a transcranial route.
  • METHODS: Between 2004 and 2007, 11 consecutive patients underwent transnasal resection of anterior cranial fossa meningiomas--4 olfactory groove (OGM) and 7 tuberculum sellae (TSM) meningiomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The technique offers a minimally invasive route to the midline anterior skull base, allowing the surgeon to avoid using brain retraction and reducing manipulation of the large vessels and optic apparatus; hastens postoperative recovery; and improves patient compliance.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Transcavernous approach to diseases of the anterior upper third of the posterior fossa.
  • OBJECT: The region in the upper anterior third of the posterior fossa is a surgically hidden, narrow corridor between the petroclival surface anteriorly and the surface of the brainstem posteriorly.
  • METHODS: A transcavernous approach was used in 91 cases (50 complex upper basilar artery [BA] aneurysms, 30 upper petroclival junction meningiomas, five trigeminal nerve schwannomas, three upper clival chordomas, and three anterior pontine lesions) involving the anterior upper third of the posterior fossa.
  • It entails removal of the anterior clinoid process.
  • It is widened inferiorly to expose the anterior aspect by removal of the posterior clinoid process and the petroclival osseous and dural elements.
  • Seventy patients experienced new transient mild cranial neuropathies, 67 of whom recovered fully.
  • Three new permanent cranial neuropathies occurred in the patients with meningiomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The safety achieved with the transcavernous route allows surgeons to achieve wide exposures to lesions involving the anterior upper third of the posterior fossa.
  • It is an approach that should be mastered by every neurosurgeon dealing with cranial lesions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Application of the supraorbital endoscopic approach to tumors of the anterior cranial base.
  • Access to tumors of the anterior cranial fossa traditionally has required wide exposure of the surgical field, along with prolonged retraction of the frontal lobes or potentially disfiguring transfacial approaches.
  • This technique is suitable for lesions situated in the region of the anterior cranial fossa, the suprasellar, and parasellar regions.
  • These cases demonstrate how the application of endoscopy to surgery of the anterior skull base and craniofacial skeleton can eliminate the need for traditional open techniques without compromising surgical success.

  • Small intratumoral calcifications are often seen within meningioma, but ossification of the whole neoplasm is very rare.
  • The case of an ossified frontosphenoorbital meningioma en plaque is presented.
  • The radiological appearance resembled extensive hyperostosis extending from the anterior clinoid process to the cerebral convexity and falx cerebri.
  • It is possible that, in some cases of meningioma, the identified "hyperostosis" represents partial ossification of the tumor itself.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Expanded endoscopic endonasal approach for anterior cranial base and suprasellar lesions: indications and limitations.
  • OBJECTIVE: The traditional boundaries of the transsphenoidal approach can be expanded to include the region from the cribriform plate of the anterior cranial fossa to the foramen magnum in the anteroposterior plane.
  • The introduction of endoscopy to transsphenoidal surgery, with its improved illumination and wider field of view, has added significant further potential for the resection of a variety of cranial base lesions.
  • We review our experience with the expanded endoscopic endonasal approach in a series of 22 patients with anterior cranial base and supradiaphragmatic lesions.
  • METHODS: From June 2005 to June 2007, the expanded endoscopic endonasal approach was used in 22 patients with the following pathologies: 6 craniopharyngiomas; 4 esthesioneuroblastomas; 3 giant pituitary macroadenomas; 2 suprasellar Rathke's pouch cysts; 2 angiofibromas; and 1 each of suprasellar meningioma, germinoma, ethmoidal carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, and large suprasellar arachnoid cyst.
  • CONCLUSION: The expanded endoscopic endonasal approach is a promising minimally invasive alternative to open transcranial approaches for selective lesions of the midline anterior cranial base.
  • This approach should be included in the armamentarium of cranial base surgeons and considered as an option in the management of selected patients with these complex pathologies.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Resection of giant meningiomas of the anterior cranial fossa using orbital osteotomies.
  • AIM: The challenge in large cranial base meningiomas is total resection of the tumor with the least possible mortality and morbidity.
  • During the last two decades the technical approaches for anterior skull base tumors have shown a considerable progress, providing a wide exposure with minimal brain retraction.
  • The purpose of this study is to present our experience with these approaches for treatment of giant anterior cranial fossa meningiomas.
  • METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed in 20 patients with giant meningiomas (diameter >4.5 cm) of the anterior cranial fossa, which were treated surgically in our department, between January 1992 and January 2002.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The extended anterior skull base approaches, using orbital osteotomies, for giant meningiomas of the anterior cranial fossa have improved the extent of radical tumor removal with minimal neurological morbidity.

  • [Title] Clinical characteristics and surgical outcomes of patients presenting with meningiomas arising predominantly from the floor of the middle fossa.
  • BACKGROUND: Little is known regarding meningiomas that primarily arise from the floor of the middle fossa as opposed to the sphenoid wing, the cavernous sinus, the anterior petrous ridge, or the lateral convexity dura.
  • METHODS: Between 1991 and 2006, 1228 patients were seen by neurosurgeons at UCSF for meningiomas of which 17 (1.1%) patients met our criteria for a "middle fossa floor" meningioma, of which 15 underwent first-time surgery and were included in this series.
  • CONCLUSION: We present the clinical characteristics and surgical outcome of a series of patients presenting with meningiomas primarily arising from the concave floor of the middle cranial fossa.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Anterior ethmoidal artery: microsurgical anatomy and technical considerations.
  • OBJECTIVE: Vascular lesions of the anterior cranial fossa can receive significant blood supply from the anterior ethmoidal artery.
  • A study of the microsurgical anatomy can help delineate the course of the anterior ethmoidal artery and find the best points for proximal control of the blood supply to these lesions.
  • Clinical cases are presented to illustrate how lesions with prominent anterior ethmoidal artery feeders are best approached through fronto-orbital single-flap craniotomies.
  • METHODS: Eight cadaveric dissections to demonstrate the microsurgical anatomy of the anterior ethmoidal artery were performed to study the relevant anatomy.
  • The dissections show the course of the anterior ethmoidal artery from the ophthalmic artery in the orbit, through the anterior ethmoidal foramen into the ethmoid air cells, to the cribriform plate, where it turns superiorly to become the anterior falx artery.
  • The first surgical case is of a giant tuberculum sellae meningioma that was resected with coagulation and division of the anterior ethmoidal arteries at the anterior ethmoidal foramina at the laminae papyraceae of both medial orbital walls.
  • The second surgical case is of a large deep right frontal arteriovenous malformation that was resected with coagulation and division of the anterior ethmoidal artery at the anterior ethmoidal foramen of the lamina papyracea of the right medial orbital wall.
  • CONCLUSION: The cadaveric dissections and our surgical experience show that the anterior ethmoidal artery has three important sites for surgical access:.
  • 1) the anterior ethmoidal foramen at the lamina papyracea of the medial orbital wall;.
  • 2) the anterior ethmoid canal at the lateral ethmoid wall; and 3) extradurally, at the cribriform plate.
  • The described orbital-cranial approach in this article is not being advocated to replace the standard pterional and frontal approaches; rather, we suggest it as an option in these complex cases that require early proximal control of the anterior ethmoidal artery feeders.

  • [Title] [Linear accelerator-based stereotactic radiation treatment of patients with medial middle fossa meningiomas].
  • Medial middle fossa meningiomas are challenging for neurosurgical treatment.
  • Invasion of cranial nerves and vessels leads to high risk of complications after removal of such meningiomas.
  • During a 3.5-year period 80 patients with medial middle fossa meningiomas were treated in Burdenko Moscow Neurosurgical Institute using linear accelerator "Novalis".
  • In majority of patients symptoms included cranial nerve dysfunction: oculomotor disturbances in 62.5%, trigeminal impairment--in 37.5%, visual deficit--in 43.8%, facial nerve palsy--in 1.25%.
  • Stereotactic radiation treatment is the method of choice for medial anterior and middle fossa meningiomas due to effective control of tumor progression and minimal rate of complications.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Four subtypes of petroclival meningiomas: differences in symptoms and operative findings using the anterior transpetrosal approach.
  • METHOD: Ninety-one patients with petroclival meningioma underwent surgery via the anterior transpetrosal approach.
  • The rate of middle fossa extension was the highest in the TE type (59.5%).
  • The middle fossa approach was considered to be ideal for UC and TE types because of easier access to the Meckel's cave.
  • Both the anterior transpetrosal approach and the lateral suboccipital approach could be indicated in the PA type due to the rare invasion of Meckel's cave and middle fossa, and frequent extension into the internal auditory meatus.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This classification is useful to predict the relation between the tumour and the cranial nerves based on symptoms and images.
  • The anterior transpetrosal approach could be used for all four subtypes and with an absolute indication in the UC and TE types showing middle fossa extension.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Surgery for tumors in MC was performed via 2 approaches: anterolateral interdural access (Dolenc's) approach and posterior access via the anterior petrosal approach (APA).
  • RESULTS: The Dolenc approach was useful for parasellar tumors, especially schwannomas, because it resulted in minimal damage to the temporal lobe and adjacent cranial nerves.
  • The APA was useful for dumbbell-shaped tumors extending into the posterior fossa.
  • However, incidence of postsurgical paresthesia and abducens palsy were higher in meningioma and hemangiopericytoma, because of invasion into the Gasserian ganglion, the cavernous sinus (CS), or Dorello's canal.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: The supraorbital craniotomy was initially described as a minimally invasive means to target extra-axial lesions in the anterior cranial fossa and sellar/parasellar region.
  • DISCUSSION: The supraorbital craniotomy and its modifications provide an ideal anterior subfrontal approach through which a wide variety of pathology can be approached.
  • This technique has particular considerations in comparison to traditional cranial base approaches that must be taken into account before it is utilized.

  • CONCLUSION: The extended retrosigmoid intradural suprameatal approach allows exposure of the posterior cavernous sinus and may be used to remove lesions of the posterior fossa extending into the Meckel's cave and into the cavernous sinus.

  • In one case, we used a trans- and infralabyrinthine transjugular approach (to control the extension of the lesion in the jugular foramen, within the sinusojugular axis, and in the internal auditory canal), associated with an anterior petrosectomy (to control the invaded petrous apex, Meckel's cave, and a middle cranial fossa extension).
  • In the other case, we used a retro- and infralabyrinthine transsigmoid transtentorial approach to control the venous axis, the posterior fossa dura, and the tentorium.
  • CONCLUSIONS: An à la carte petrosectomy performed by a surgical team with great expertise in the field of petrous bone anatomy and segmentation should lead to total removal including exposure of the dural tail and intracranial portion of the tumor, while preserving all cranial nerve functions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Intracranial SFT closely resembles meningioma clinically and radiologically, and, like meningioma, reports of meningeal SFT suggest a relatively benign behaviour after complete resection.
  • Histopathological features distinguishing SFT from meningioma include variable cellularity, spindle cells arranged in fascicles, staghorn blood vessels and immunopositivity for CD34.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: The case is reported of a 60-year-old man with an anterior cranial fossa meningeal-based mass, which was resected.
  • Histological features of meningioma were lacking.

  • A sequential progression of bone removal at the anterior and middle skull base, followed by opening the layers of the lateral wall of the cavernous sinus was next performed to safely retract the brain and widen the exposure to the cavernous sinus, interpeduncular fossa, and upper petroclival regions.
  • The main indications for surgery were as follows: meningioma (25 patients, 38%), basilar artery aneurysm (11 patients, 17%), trigeminal schwannoma (7 patients, 11%), chordoma (5 patients, 7%), hemangioma (3 patients, 5%), pituitary adenoma (3 patients, 5%), superior cerebellar artery aneurysm (3 patients, 5%), and other lesions (9 patients, 14%).
  • Complications included hemiparesis in 4 patients (6%), infarcts in 4 patients (6%), transient aphasia in 1 patient (1.5%), and cranial nerve paresis in 20 patients (30%).
  • Mobilization of the cranial nerves and internal carotid artery allow gentle brain retraction and maximal preservation of venous outflow.
